MAKE-UP GURU

Living Etc - - DESIGN / PROFILE -

Bobbi launched her iconic make-up brand 25 years ago this year, hav­ing made her name in New York as the go-to make-up artist for any­one seek­ing the nat­u­ral look. Start­ing out with just ten lip­sticks, she has built the business into a global em­pire with her UK stand­alone stores (from Spi­tal­fields to Ed­in­burgh) re­flect­ing her in­dus­trial-glam edge. Here, Bobbi ex­plains the in­spi­ra­tion be­hind the look of her of­fice in New York’s bustling Soho.

What’s most im­por­tant when it comes to your of­fice de­sign?

It’s a place where I spend a lot of time meet­ing with my team, so it’s im­por­tant for the space to be com­fort­able and invit­ing. The room is full of bright, nat­u­ral light. It has win­dows that open eas­ily and art and ob­jects that in­spire me, in­clud­ing prints by [Lon­don-based artist] Magda Archer and Queen Elizabeth mem­o­ra­bilia – I’m a com­plete An­glophile. What about the many other pic­tures here?

Over 25 years, my of­fice has be­come an ar­chive of some of my most mem­o­rable mo­ments – from trips to the White House to let­ters from the many women I’ve worked with. They’re a con­stant re­minder of how far beauty and the brand have come.
